Two sad records
Even if I won't make my own "best of" lists this year, I am a sucker for other people's lists. Two records I have heard, just after seeing them on lots of lists, are Bon Iver's «For Emma, Forever Ago», a stripped down kind of indiefolk (I could do with less falsetto, but that's my taste) and the Austrian Fennesz' "Black Sea", a kind of dark ambient electronica, if you get my meaning (probably not).
Great albums, that will do just find this Christmas, as you may play them loud without the bass bothering other people. A bit sad though, but some of us like that.
